best labor day sales 2021

Every year since 1894, we pause for a one Monday in September to appreciate the achievements of the American labor movement. The gains made by that movement has made vast, life-changing improvements for just about everyone, and it deserves to be celebrated.

Labor Day is also the day when we make the assumption that summer is over, even if the sun says otherwise. Additionally, Labor Day has become a shopping holiday, because that's what happens to any three-day weekend. You might welcome that, however, if you're in dire need of camping gear, a new mattress, back-to-school supplies, or home goods. They're all on sale from stores like Article, Bear Mattress, SodaStream, and a whole lot of others.

To make sure you can spend your precious time away from work in ways that bring you the most joy, we've done the research for you. Here are the best sales taking place over Labor Day weekend.
